Kittens Foil Thieves

by duncanr

You buy them as a pair

Yet over time, you end up with a drawer full of odd ones

How that happens is a mystery

Great minds have pondered the puzzle – to no avail.

Now, however, Madhatters can reveal the sinister secret that has baffled Einstein, Hawkins, and even Sherlock Holmes . . .

Facebook Fool

by duncanr

1. Lets pretend that your granny doesn’t trust banks and keeps all her life savings under the mattress

2. Lets pretend she asks you one day to help her count the cash

3. Lets pretend you take a photograph of all this cash piled up on the kitchen table

4. Lets pretend you then ‘post’ a copy of that photograph in shop windows and lamp-posts in the neighbourhood

At this point, you’re probably saying ‘Whoah, there – only an imbecile would do that. You’re practically inviting the criminal fraternity to come pay your granny a visit and relieve her of all that cash’.

And you would be right. No-one in their right mind would be so stupid as to do as I’ve described in the hypothetical situation above – but then they go on Facebook and . . .

He forgot to log off !

There are certain attributes or skills one needs to be a successful crook – [by successful I mean here the ability to evade capture by the police]

Intelligence is useful in this regard.

Thieves Sell Petrol at Half price

by duncanr

Police in Germany are hunting for thieves who broke into a petrol station at night, then sold the petrol to motorists at half-price.

The thieves are reckoned to have made several thousand Euros before the pumps ran dry

Somewhat optimistically, the police are now appealing for those motorists who took advantage of the ‘special offer’ to come forward and pay the money they owe

Traffic Light Fail

by duncanr

I hate getting stuck at traffic lights, especially when I’m in a hurry (i.e., late)

But can you imagine the chaos on the roads – especially with the volume of traffic nowadays – if we didn’t have traffic lights?

It would be, well . . . like driving in Johannesburg !!!

Seems the high tech traffic lights there are fitted with GPS locators and simm cards so if . . .

Cops and Robbers

by duncanr

burglar (1)The trouble with the current economic crisis is the way it leads to an erosion of values within society.

Time was when criminals served an apprenticeship, moving up through the ranks, until reaching the exalted position of being acclaimed a ‘master criminal’. Crooks took a pride in a job well done. They held a certain standing in the community – played golf with the Chief Constable.

Sadly, amateurs are taking to crime and their lack of professionalism shows through. I mean, take the example of two geezers in Germany, who robbed a shop while enroute to their local police station to face questioning about a different robbery.

Now committing one robbery on your way to answer questions about a previous one may exhibit a certain style but only a rank amateur would turn up at the police station in the same clothes he had worn to rob the shop. Police officers returning to the station having got a detailed description of the robbers from the store owner could hardly believe their eyes when they found a man fitting the description of one of the robbers sat in their station. A look in the police carpark found his accomplice sat in the stolen getaway car, with the loot

Bloody amateurs !!!
